(AP) A general director of Doctors Without Borders is calling for greater access for humanitarian aid in Syria to help people affected by the country's civil war.


Christopher Stokes also urged the international community to show the same urgency to secure access for such assistance as it did to rid Syria of its chemical weapons.


Stokes said the recent access granted to weapons inspectors proves areas that have long been sealed-off can be opened if the political will exists.


Doctors Without Borders currently only operates in opposition-held areas. Stokes said Tuesday that Damascus has not authorized the group to work in government-controlled territory.
